Robben booed in Bayern friendly


MUNICH — Arjen Robben was booed by many of his home Bayern Munich fans when he made an appearance for the Netherlands in a friendly three days after he missed a penalty in the Champions League final against Chelsea.

Robben's spot kick in extra time was saved by Petr Cech and Chelsea won the penalty shootout to lift the title at Bayern's Allianz Arena on Saturday.

Bayern won 3-2 Tuesday in a match that was part of the settlement to a long dispute between the club and the Dutch federation after Robben returned injured from the 2010 World Cup in South Africa and could not play for months. Bayern demanded and won compensation from the Dutch.

Former Bayern captain Mark van Bommel called it "scandalous" how the Bayern fans whistled at Robben.
